  1. Eleven years after its initial release, the trusty 3DS is getting one last hurrah in the form of a Japanese indie shoot'em-up sequel to a genre cult classic from almost three decades ago. T3h hardc0r3. The first Andro Dunos was a side scrolling arcade game in the shoot’em up category. It was originally released almost thirty years ago in 1992 by SNK. Some 29 years have passed since the Earth Defence first called on Yellow Cherry and Red Fox to stop the imminent invasion from an unknown alien race. Many light years away on the edge of our galaxy the threat has reared its ugly head once again and this time they mean business. There’s just one thing to do, dust off the finest Earth Defence ships ever made and send the alien scum packing. It’s apparent that these relics from a war time that was forgotten had seen better days and only one ship -the Yellow Cherry- could be saved using parts from the Red Fox which was critically damaged in the first war. Are you up for the task of saving the earth once more? As the direct sequel to one of the most famous sh'mups from the early 1990s, Andro Dunos II presents you with an epic side-scrolling space journey full of arcade action! Fight and explode hundred of spaceships thanks to various weapons such as laser, hawk, and even powerful homing missiles. You can recover power ups by destroying enemies. Music composed by industry veteran Allister Brimble (Alien Breed, Body Blows, Project-X, Colonization, Driver). Launch trailer: Out now on the 3DS and most other platforms
  2. I'd ordered #369 on February 25th and it arrived (in the EU) nearly a month later.
  3. Hear hear! You forgot to mention the replaceable covers of the n3DS. sWhy I prefer it over the n3DS XL.
  4. The only GaaS game I've played and enjoyed so far has been Sky. And looking back, the cash I've splashed on that didn't really seem worth it in hindsight. Fortnite simply isn't for me and Babylon's Fall is a laughable mess, and besides that I simply have had no real interest in any of those type of games. Games are meant to be a fun way of sitting back and relaxing, not some sort of commitment or second job. If that's where the industry's going I'll happily replay the 600+ games I already have til either me or my consoles break down.
  5. There's even been a new release for the 3DS:
  6. Good to see they're scheduling some extra dev. time to add loftwings. Remember when people said Nintendo was doomed at every announcement? Good times. Nintendo are doomed obviously. Also, with Bayonetta 3 and Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, they already have lined up two potential blockbusters for the end of this year. Other things to play in the meantime: Kirby & The Forgotten World, Triangle Strategy, Splatoon 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Advance Wars Re-boot & Elden Ring DLC. It is still a shame though as I don't like Zelda games releasing in Spring. Since their initial release on the NES, they have always been the perfect Christmas game.
  7. Someone going the extra mile for his Elden Ring cosplay:
  8. Ahh, tramp gaming on a 25" screen ftw in this case.
  9. Well deserved score for Triangle Strategy too. Basically a new Tactics Ogre game for this gen, with those lovely 2D HD graphics. It got a bit lost as it was released so close to Elden Ring, but it definitely deserves gamers' attention.
  10. An eight, motherf---ers; Edgetm eight motherf---ers. Making this the best new Kirby game since Planet Robobot iirc.
  11. I'd hardly call one minor outlet giving a low score divisive tbh. Siliconera - 10 out of 10 GameSpot - 8 out of 10 Game Informer - 8 out of 10 Destructoid - 7.5 out of 10 Games radar - 7 out of 10 IGN - 7 out of 10 NME - 6 out of 10 Sounds like a more than decent new release. I remember The Evil Within getting similar scores, and it's one of my favourite PS4 titles.
  12. Other scheduled tracks are: – Sydney Sprint (Tour) – LA Laps (Tour) – New York Minute (Tour) – Koopa Cape (Wii) – Maple Treeway (Wii) – Mario Circuit (SNES) – Vanilla Lake (SNES) – Rainbow Road (3DS)
  13. Hot damn; is it me or do these new tracks look really rough?
  14. The From software games always have had an awesome combination of music and imagery in their trailers: The only thing I found lacking with Elden Ring, is that the trailers for it didn't continue that trend - but that's hardly the game's fault.
  15. Good but not great this: Destructoid - 8.5 out of 10 IGN - 8.0 out of 10 Gamespot - 7.0 out of 10 Game Informer - 7.0 out of 10 Games radar: 5.0 out of 10
  16. Or not! Going from quite disappointed to cautiously optimistic, which means I'll buy it on release now.
